msm files are not redistributable, only as a part of our installation
sets (i.e. already merged). 6cfe3c93dc55264e57f1057a2911d54232353d13
wanted to make VC100 merge modules truly optional, so the intention
was that everything should work without this merge module. If it fails
for you, please try to find out why, try to fix it and send a patch.
See also http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/history/core/oowintool. The
question is why you have WITH_VC100_REDIST defined. Many thanks in
